The series directed by Pratik Gandhi recently caused a stir at the Asian Academy Creative Awards, winning Best Drama Series and Best Director.

Scam 1992 tells the story of stock broker Harshad Mehta who orchestrated the Rs 5,000 crore securities scandal of 1992, which led to the revelation of numerous flaws in the functioning of the stock market and banks. It was an adaptation of the book The Scam: Who Won, Who Lost, Who Got Away by financial journalists Sucheta Dalal and Debashish Basu.

A sequel series titled Scam 2003: The Curious Case of Abdul Karim Telgi was previously announced by the OTT platform. Hansal Mehta will lead the project.

Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta hannouncement gave the series a positive review, calling it a “gripping uplifting tale.”She wrote: “The series directed by Hansal Mehta (Jai Mehta gets co-directing credit) does a clever balancing act, never swings into adulation of Harshad, nor shows him as an outright villain. What we get is a full bodied, fully fleshed out, complex individual, so much of a man of his time, place, circumstances, and skill set, and for that alone this series is a winner.
